Terry Grows Up?


Terry Richardson has a reputation for getting all the hot, young things hot and bothered (/topless) in front of his white backdrop and under his bright flash, but from the looks of his latest work, he’s moved on to some more...grown-up pastures (Jared Leto candids notwithstanding).

Terry turned his lens on Angela Lansbury [3] for The Gentlewoman’s Fall issue and then snapped Oprah Winfrey for November Harper’s Bazaar [1,2] (we’re kind of obsessed with both). Back in 2011, there was his Love magazine shoot with Liza Minelli [4,5,6]. Lest we forget, he shot Molly Ringwald, Mariel Hemingway, and Tatum O’Neal for the fourth issue of Love (Molly wrote about the experience on her blog. Who knew Terry loved pink peonies? Not us!).

We love a good unorthodox pairing—so Terry, may we respectfully suggest Dame Maggie Smith, Hillary Clinton, or Her Royal Majesty Elizabeth II for Terry's Diary?

    Whoever did Oprah's makeup did a fantastic job! She looks stunning. And it is nice to see some more refined and talented women in front of his lens, rather than only those of the Kate Upton ilk.

    I like the shoot Terry did with Kate for Harper's Bazaar, but other than that, I find his work a bit...overrated.
    Oprah looks great though, I love her makeup.

    I kind of like it.. and then I don't know how I feel about those minelli picks, there'a something a little unworthy about them.

    Please please please do an Oprah topshelf post! She's great.

  • Tisifone

    He is so gross. I really do not undestand why is appreciated at all!

    Ugh, why is this creepy predator still working?

  • courtney

    Get off of gross old pervy Terry Richardson and get with whoever did Oprah's makeup! I think this is the best she's ever looked! I bet a top shelf with her would be ridiculous: $2000 face creams, "I haven't washed my own hair in 20 years" type stuff that would blow LSD out of the water :)


Dearest ITG Reader,
